• Lesions of the cerebral hemispheres can produce signs and symptoms very similar to those produced by cerebellar lesions. I studied a case that demonstrated the signs of dysmetria and intention tremor; it resulted from an infarct of areas 5, 7, and, to a lesser extent, 40, of the contralateral cerebral hemisphere.
